Creature Feature #10: Albatross

One of the largest flying birds in the world, the albatross spends most of her life on the wing, or resting on the surface of the ocean. She rarely comes ashore, except to breed, and favours isolated islands over populated main lands.
With a wingspan of up to 3.5m (Wandering Albatross) and weighing up to 12.7 kilos, it can take a bit of flapping and exertion to get airborne, but once aloft, the albatross will rarely flap its wings and glides and soars on the thermals.

This is an Art Card (2.5 x 3.5 inches) and is available for purchase (NZ$10) or trade.
